My Thoughts - Halloween Hi-Jinx Author: Annee Jones

About the Book

Book: Halloween Hi-Jinx

Author: Annee Jones

Genre: Clean Cozy Mystery

Release date: October 14, 2022

Jinx the cat has a bad reputation for always being in the wrong place at the wrong time – and this Halloween turns out to be no different….

His former owners called him “Cursed” – blamed him for their troubles that began occurring after they got him, which is reason he was turned back into the shelter.  But Clarissa Lightfoot, owner of the new Cat Café doesn’t believe it and wants to help clear his name, so she brings him to the new café (doubling as a halfway house for homeless animals).  – There’s no such thing as a Cursed Cat…. Or is there???

The Cat Café is hosting a costume party fundraiser for Halloween to help homeless animals.  After the party, it’s discovered that someone stole $$ from the cash register, and Clarissa is implicated in the crime.

Someone wants her & her new café to go “Poof” and disappear – but who & why?

Can Jinx – along with handsome police officer Cody Shelton – help discover who’s playing tricks on Clarissa this Halloween?

The story is told in part from Jinx the cat’s point of view!!  😉

My Thoughts

Halloween Hi-Jinx is a fun cozy mystery that is written by  Annee Jones. This is part of the Holiday Pet Slueth Series. I have not read all the books in the series, and they can be read as stand alones. 

This story we meet Jinx. He's a black cat with an attitude. (My sister has a black cat named Penny - she also has an attitude. Her German Shepherds are afraid of Penny. Jinx reminded me of Penny.) Clarissa runs a cafe where you can drink coffee and adopt cats. The Cat Cafe is gearing up for a fundraiser that will hopefully keep the Cat Cafe in business. However, money is stolen from the register and Jinx wants to know who did it. 

The story is told from Jinx's point of view. I loved this premises. Jinx also has a bad rap from being a black cat. There is a nice blend of humor and mystery. The author did a great job creating a fun easy to read story. 

Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
